Battlefield

I've watched you from the start my friend

Waited for you to realise.

That I can see the darkness hidden 

Behind those steel grey eyes.

You love her though she hurts you.

You please her though she can't be pleased.

You kiss her though she pulls away.

Why can't you see?

You believe the things she tells you

Believe that you are nought

You believe that she is right,

Your hearts never in her thoughts

But I can see the invisible bruises

The scars and blood and tears

That you won't even admit to,

You can't feel your own fears.

You say that you are happy 

And small battles you have won.

But this love is a battlefield

And on this battlefield you are undone.

You bend for her.

She breaks you.

You change for her.

She hates you.

Your heart is pure,

Your soul is bright.

For those you love

You always fight.

You deserve to be told the truth

You deserve to be loved for who you are

You deserve so much more than her

Not to be pitied from afar.

You love her though she hurts you.

You please her though she can't be pleased.

You kiss her though she pulls away.

Why can't you see me?

The End
